First comes sunshine, then comes the rain. What to know about this week’s weather forecast
Spring is ramping up in Miami, which means it’s the start of the 305’s rainy season — with a little sunshine making a guest appearance.
You may want to savor the breezy, sunny days by hitting the beach. But if you’re going early this week, keep in mind that the National Weather Service Miami is warning of the high risk for rip currents across coastal Broward and Miami-Dade through Monday evening.
If you’re caught in a rip current, don’t swim against the current. Swim along the shoreline and call or wave for help.
